our nation's capital. i'm john fugelsang filling in today and i'm delighted to be here with you. this is october 1 the birthday of mark mcguire and 88th 88th birthday of former president jimmy carter. it's cold in our nation's capitol but we are very pleads to be talking with you about the issues that matter most. please feel free to call us. >> good morning everyone. both candidates are gearing up for the first presidential debate. president obama will stay in nevada for the next few days to wrap up final preparations. he campaigned in las vegas last night to a group of 11,000 supporters and in an effort to manage his expectations said he's just an okay debater. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you will. >> i don't know about that. president romney is a good debater. >> that is in response to reports that romney is prepping and plans on taking jabs at the president. obama spokeswoman is saying don't expect the president to fire any blows and he looks forward to continuing his conversation with the american people.
with a candidates, republican senator john mccain, and then the risk of being the frontrunner with obama's senior advisor david axelrod. die secretarying the campaign message. plus, polls, ads, and early voting. with republican strategist alex castellanos, and cinda lake and congressional correspondent dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> it would not be debate season if the political world and the campaigns didn't play the expectations game. >> the president is obviously a very eloquent, gifted speaker. he will do just fine. >> the president's campaign manager jim mecina called romney a very skilled debater and in an open memo to interested parties, senior advisor david axelrod just as he was in the primaries, we expect mitt romney to be a prepared, disciplined, and aggressive debater. joining me now is someone who knows a thing or two about expectations and debates, republican senator john mccain. a little trip down memory lane there. you smiled during it, i thought that was interesting. you debated both. size up the debate. >> i think it will be excellent. i think bo
years ago, john mccain stood up to a supporter who called then-senator obama an arab. here's his instantaneous, instinctive reaction. take a look. >> i have read about him and he's not -- he's a -- he's an arab. he's not -- >> no, ma'am. >> no? >> no, ma'am, no, ma'am. he's a decent, family man, citizen that i just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. that's what this campaign is all about. >> yeah, that's called honor. it's called honor. we're not seeing a lot of that. we're not seeing any of that. >> i haven't seen that on either side in this campaign. >> john mccain is a genuine guy. disagree with him, agree with him, whatever, it's called honor. the republican party used to believe in that. >> put it more crudely, there's some crap i won't eat. i'm not going to go along with what i see as is an ethnic campaign, that shouldn't be part of this campaign. i'm not going to go along with what you said. that instinctive no, no, is the greatest american spirit. i'm not going to do that. >> imagine mitt romney doing that. >> i would like to see every politician do
? john heilemann is new york magazine national affairs editor and an msnbc contributor. and i must give you congratulations, john. i was outherwithou, u maalrin e bo thicupour, count them, four emmys this weekend, this sunday night. we all watched. it must be amazing to be part of a show that included that fit hour or so of that show and then it got intellectual when you got up there. i thout it was pretty nglations.. it's all part of television. susan page, thank you. i'm sure you'll get your emmy some day for front page reporting with "usa today." let me ask you about a game-changing situation. i know you don't want to give away your next book. it seems bl cltosp in charlotte not only changed the political sort of feel but people began to feel coming out of that according to some polling i have seen feeling better about the economy objectively. >> yes. >> tell me about that. the way you look at that. >> i think hugely important that speech, chris, i think in a way even conservatives have acknowledged the speech was kind of a game-changing mt in the election. he did twoiffentng e ceh e
and wavering conviction. >> let's get more on what's going on with our chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. his aides keep saying he, but romney will never apologize for america. the accusation being that president obama has repeatedly supposedly apologized for america. >> you've heard this from lots of republicans and over the last year so that the president apologizes for america, that he doesn't believe in american exceptionalism. it's no surprise to me, wolf, that we're hearing this now. look, there's a crisis in the middle east. the only poll numbers in fact in which the president is going down are in foreign policy by sort of a handful of points. so this is a moment for mitt romney to take advantage of that. because in every other poll number, the president seems to be heading in the other direction, ie going up. so he's trying to take advantage of that and to tell people, you know, things aren't going so well in the middle east. this is a president who hasn't been as strong as he says he's been. and wants to get some kind of advantage and so
john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you think of job performance? all americans are split on that question. do they approve or disapprove of the president's job performance, but among latinos, nearly 7 in 10, 68% say they approve of the president's job performance. look across looking in here to find some nugget of hope for governor romney as latinos describe themselves as moderates, 76%. conservative latino voters, you would think that would be governor romney's base, 55% majority of conservative latinos plan to vote for the democratic president o
from massachusetts? >> we both know john kerry well and yes, all of those things are true but john kerry is also really smart and a great debater. we saw that firsthand in 2004. and he knows mitt romney. he's seen him up close. he followed him in his career in public life there in massachusetts. he knows the record. and i think most importantly he has a very good bedside manner with barack obama. they're very comfortable with one another and that's a big part of the process is running your paces with someone that you trust and you who understands you. >> jennifer: for sure. the romney campaign has chosen somebody who must have a really good bedside manner as well because he's been selected several times to be a stand-in. ohio senator rob portman is playing president obama for mitt romney. he was also a stand-in for john edwards, senator john edwards, vice president al gore, senator joe lieberman. why is he the go-to stand-in guy? >> he's a pretty smart character and cookie, too. i think having been a congressman,
in a plane crash over the weekend. 13-year-old kyle morton and his father, 48-year-old john morton died on saturday when his cessna crashed into a trailer park shortly after takeoff from shannon airport. the national transportation safety board is at the crash site trying to figure out what happened. people on the ground say they heard the engine stall in midair. >> you heard the engine. then you didn't hear. it disappeared. then you hear the branches. then you hear just a loud crash. the trailer shook. >> neighbors say john morton had a passion for flying, was a former marine, and worked for an airline that folded. >>> one of the drivers in a fiery crash in northwest d.c. is charged with dui. these two cars caught fire after the crash on georgia avenue in petworth yesterday morning. two people were left with third degree burns. at last check, they're still in critical condition. two police officers were also burned pulling victims to safety. police say more charges could be filed. >>> 6:35 right now. montgomery county police say they now know who tried to kidnap a teenager if a silver
to describe the pathway forward for america we would choose. >> i want to bring in john harwood and e.j. deion, author of "our divided political heart." thank you for coming on. we've been hearing this expectation game being played, the other side trying to make the other one seem as if they are the greatest debater who ever lived. let's start with a reality check and strength and weaknesses of these candidates. let's start with president obama. what is the strength in this debate? >> he's very well informed. he is a fluid speaker. he has served as president. he's got a tremendous amount of information at his command. he doesn't mess up very often. he simply doesn't create the memorable gaffe very frequently, although he's had a couple of things with "you didn't build that" and that sort of thing. >> his weakness? >> his weakness is he can come off as prophesorial and arrogant and long-winded. >> how about you? what do you think about the president? what has he got going for him? >> he should twitter because it would force him into shorter answers. he's got the advantage romney has a bunch of
will change. numbers changed a lot for john ker kerry, came back through debates two and three. >> john kerry still lost. >> policy speeches at this stage is very, very hard, not just to ingest for the voters but to break through for the candidates. you -- what we started out with the election republicans wanted it to be a referendum on obama. to pick up howard's point, it went from being a referendum on obama to a choice between the two parties and there is a danger it's a referendum on the republican party. >> yeah. >> and that's so far from where they need to be. one great performance isn't going to fix that. >> doesn't help if you have a candidate who isn't quite sure where he stands on one major of the major planks of the party. governor romney and congressman paul ryan are running like their republican predecessors on the promise of tax cuts. does cutting taxes fuel economic growth? new york sometimes david leonhardt explains why the good times may not necessarily roll next on "now." bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it'
john kerry is standing in for mitt romney in president obama's debate rehearsals. on the oth side, senator rob portman will fly with mitt romney to colorado on monday. he is playing the role of president obama in romney's practice round. >> while the candidates prepare for that debate, their running mates are courting voters in battleground states. republican paul ryan is in new hampshire and ohio today. he said president obama's economic policies were contributing to a lower standard of living. >> you're either part of the problem or part of the solution. and you know what? president obama has become part of the problem, and mitt romney is the solution. >> and vice president joe biden is wrapping up a two-day swing through florida. at a rally in ft. myers, he blasted romney and ryan on medicare. >> if what the republicans -- if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and biden is true on medicare, why would the american medical suggestion endorse our position? why would the national american hospital association and most importantly, why would aarp endorse us? >> president ob
them back to reality. >> senator john mccain is the only man who has debated both of these individuals. he weighed in on the expectations this morning. take a listen. >> serve and provide us -- >> it's not just that they go bankrupt, he doesn't understand -- >> comments that grabbed everybody's attention. because frankly, the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. >> what you did not hear the beginning there, is the senator said i think you're going to see more viewers, than any debate in history. and then he also said he can't remember the last time that any of these things affected the outcome of a presidential race. save 1960 and 2000, have the debates ever really impacted the outcome of a race, chris kofinis? >> it's funny, i hear the debate about debates not necessarily mattering. and i actually disagree with that i think the 1980, the reagan/carter debate. the debates mattered. they matter in every election, they either reinforce a narrative in the election meaning we think we're going to vote for president obama. president obama does well in that debate and it
contributor in his slum landlord business, in inner city chicago. >> so, wolf blitzer, joe johns myself had an opportunity to ask questions of the candidate in myrtle beach. do you remember the energy in that room. i mean you knew when they went after each other the battle was on. it was game on time. you had cheers. you had jeers. all that. and people remember those moments. what do you think -- what do you think the president -- what do you think he learned out of that experience? >> you know, i thought about that for a while today, suzanne. i think the president clearly perfected his style. it was pretty clear to me that he started seeing even then that any flashes of anger on his part were more likely than not to go over poorly. so in that debate that you and in moderated together with wolf, we saw efforts by hillary clinton who was also running for president at the time to get under the president's skin, to get under mr. obama's skin again and again and again. it looked like to some degree there in south carolina both hillary clinton and bill clinton were sort of -- were sort of going
in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said that is for the romney campaign to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. but getting back to that phone call, wolf, between romney and prime minister netanyahu, mitt romney just briefed reporters on his campaign plane just about half an hour ago about that conversation. he said netanyahu did talk about that red line on where he would try to draw a line on iran's nuclear weapons program. and romney said he offered his own comments on the issue but wouldn't go into any greater detail than that. and also it's also interesting to note, wolf, romney was asked on the plane about any current assessments on how the president and how the white house is handling the diplomatic attacks in libya, the inves
or for this country has seen since lincoln. >> you're with the president. >> the frightened president, john. like little girl scared. i mean, mitt romney, talk about brilliant. two harvard degrees. the guy has never even lost an argument. >> he's no slouch. i mean, he's the president. >> smoke and mirrors. right now they're drilling him on basic grammar skills. >> romney's people just hope he remains upright. he's a big napper, john. big napper. mitt romney, 90 minutes awake and upright means big win for the camp. >> so jonathan, pugh had an interesting poll showing that president obama is expected to win the debate by a51% and mitt romney by 29%. it seems like president obama is more highly anticipated as the winner of the debate. do these sort of expectations setting games actually work for voters? >> i don't think they matter too much for the voters. it's a lot of fun for us to talk about. you know, as the comedy that you were just playing before suggested, if either one of these guys gets a complete sentence out, it should be a surprise to all of us. look, i think that it -- it matters a litt
. joining us now, ceo of the illinois policy institute. john, you're in illinois, the worst offender when it comes to unfunded liabilities, $167 billion worth of unfunded liabilities. with 28% of the system is actually funded, how can you get into such a mess? >> too much spending, not enough self-control and the unions really run the show and tell the politicians what to do and the politicians are very reluctant to say no to them. the bad news is politicians are trying to get out of this by having the rest of the country bail out the rest of the state spending out of the problem and we are trying to stop that. ashley: it is all across the country the democratic governor of illinois suggested the federal government bail out the pension programs and then backtracked. what kind of balash did he suffer because of that suggestion? >> he has been very unhappy with his project because we reported the truth that he is backtracked from it but still refuses to explicitly repudiate the policy not only will they not seek or address, move on to california. very responsible relatively speaking. ashley
of the answers and suddenly the secretary of state is coming around. >> steve: a lot of good questions for john mccane who will with us and then rudy guiliani. we have a big show. put down the clicker, rail. >> gretchen: imagine seeing a man carrying a grenade launcher in the middle of a street. 39 year old michaelatureley dress said up a 16 year old nefew because he wanted to test police response time. cops arrested the phoenix man two months after it was posted on youtube. >> steve: a major defense contractor slashing jobbings. there are looming defense cuts to be blamed for the lay offs. it will slash 500 million in the defense unless congress steps in. it s all about the sequester. >> brian: incredible. he's no master of disguy. an illegal immigrant was trying to hide in a seat to cross the border from morroro to spain. police touched the seat and felt a human. he was ticklish. all three were taken boo custody. >> gretchen: these heels are made for walking. looking for relief for women walking around heelings. a massachusetts woman comes with convert. they start out short and get taller it
: no. >> andrea: john bolton in new york has three security guards. >> eric: valerie jarret has a security detail flying her around the country. >> andrea: what is most troubling to know there is a revival of radical islam. the intelligence community. could you imagine being an intel officer that is saying i'm trying to do my job here. basically, the top is telling me up the -- selling me up the river. if you're diplomatic official, you're running for your life. forget policy. the arab spring has been a total failure. and where is president obama praising what is happening? >> dana: today, they pulled all of the american personnel out of libya today. >> bob: smart thing to do. you said rebirth of islamic terrorist? >> bob: on the march. >> bob: it's been on the march for 2,000 years. >> dana: i thought it was waning. >> bob: why are you surprised by this? vastly overrated. >> greg: this comes from the fact that the administration fears words. it's afraid to call a spade a spade, which is why the fort hood thing was workplace violence. all of that stuff, they can't call it terror
of one-on-one. john mccain wasn't the best debater either. he doesn't blow anybody away. >> i spoke with nate silver from the "new york times" who has looked at all the polls and how much ground mitt romney has to gain, as much as seven points, a lot to gain in some of the key battleground states through a debate performance when two guys can be very well prepared, one sitting president. >> kerry did it though against bush. >> i don't know that he made up all that ground. >> it's not the debate, what is it for mitt romney the last five and a half weeks of this campaign to change it? >> i think he does have to go big. he has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about medicare plan that paul ryan has put in place that is beginning to hurt them in the battleground states. i don't think there's one thing that can turn it around for him except the ufo theory which i keep coming back, to and we just had it again in the last two weeks. the terrorist attack on our libyan emb

was acceptable, and they got carried away. >> reporter: john zanelli now says other coaches on the team offered the boys $20 cash bounties for big hits on opposing players. he declined to speak on camera with cnn, but off camera confirmed details of the alleged bounty program, first reported by keith sharon and frank mickadite. >> all in all, we now have six parents and players saying that this happened. six out of a team of about 22 confirming that this happened. so there's no doubt in my mind that this happened. >> we spoke with one player from the 2011 red cobras team whose parents did not want him identified because he feared retaliation. players told us coaches did discuss cash incentive for big hits and that after games, players would vote on which player would receive the money. he also said he saw a coach give a player cash. darren, the coach, says those claims are nonsense. >> did you ever suggest or pay for a player to hurt a player on another team? >> absolutely not. i think that they're trumped up charges. i think john zanelli made these charges up in his head and wrote them down on
the way back when they accused john mccain of having an illegitimate black child. the worst part of that accusation is, oh, this child is black. the kind of folks who go for this only have one thing against barack obama, that he's black and not a republican conservative. those two things in that order. all the rest is window dressing. when you get to this segment. and so someone like ralph reed is the kind of person i'm talking about in my book "crazy for god" who has sold the republican party down the river. i used to be a republican. the republican party is not my republican party of jack kemp who you could disagree with his policies but he was not a hate monger. ral john mccain called ralph reed and people like him agents of intolerance. and he had it right. there's a scum bottom-dwelling creature here that has been part of american politics a long time. always on the wrong side. always on the side of the ho homophobes, the hate mongers. he comes up again like when you're car sick. if the ivevangelicals that go f him, bad for them. most know who he is and they will not be sway
beat john mccain by just one point. 49 to 48. but among white men in 2008, he lost by 16 points to john mccain. among white males so far in 2012 romney leads -- you heard some of the leads among other groups but among white males romney over obama 60% to 34%. a 26-point lead among white males. i don't get it. i guess the question is what's wrong with white males. other question is can white males alone save mitt romney? i don't think so. i would love your take on this. help us figure it out. 1-800-steph-12. look what is it about white men? is it they're afraid of losing their job? they're afraid of losing their homes? they're afraid of not getting ahead in the world? they're afraid they won't be able to take care of their families. they're afraid of a black man? what is it? is it racism? is it that they just can't stand the fact that there is a black man in the oval office and you know, they're a white guy and this is a white country and our forefathers were white and what's going on here? we're losing
that are working. st. johns hospital in springfield, took their medicare population and with quality control and customer satisfaction, they were able to reduce $17 million in medicare payment that's were owed. as a result, they got a bonus of $4 million. that's what we need to do in a capitalistic system. spending less money rather than incentivizing more treatment. >> jonathan dine >> like many of the government entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid are all coming to a cusp. they are coming towards a financial cliff where we will not going to be able to save them. i would propose block granting the states money based on population to deliver healthcare for seniors and people over 55. i feel that the states will be more closer to people of the state actually more listen to the legislator and provide you better service. any time you expect the government to manage your money efficiently, we can look at the record of spending mon wrecklessly with mismanagement. i feel hadwe really need to make tough choice or we will all be left with nothing. >> congressman an and senator mccaskill privati
's hear from john in pennsylvania on the independent line. good morning. will the vice-presidential candidates impact your vote? are you there? let's try missoni in fort worth, texas. -- tony in fort worth, on the democratic line. caller: yes, i think it will impact the vote, for me in particular. during the primaries, i think mitt romney and saw that a generic candidate would probably beat barack obama. i think that's why he is not elaborate on any of his plans. then he chose paul ryan, who has a very distinguished voting record and he has written policies that are extremely right-wing. so i think that he has put himself between a rock and a hard place when you are looking at what he thinks and what paul ryan thinks. often conflict over their different views. host: everything happening over the weekend and this week is very busy under the umbrella of lots more polls coming out. here's one in the "washington times" -- the washington post says the race is tight but not in the key states. they point out to that nationally the race is not moved since early september. carol

administration resigned over another spending scandal. obama administration appointee john sepelveda quit as an inspector general report detailed abuses at v.a. summit in orlando that cost more than $6 million tax dollars. massive cuts are holding over the defense industry at the end of the year. we talked about that before. the obama administration wants contractors to hold off on layoff notices. not only that, the administration is promising something else that has republicans in an uproar in washington. fox business network correspondent rich edison explains from washington tonight. good evening. >> good evening. it's called the warn act, and it says certain contractors must give their workers 60 days' notice ahead of layoffs. with more than $50 million in automatic defense cuts hitting january 2, companies should start warning the employees before election day, but not so fast. obama administration says warning workers in the next few months is inappropriate. even saying that government will pick up some company legal bills in case layoff workers sue because their bosses failed to giv
